Daoud Defends Munich


Not the film, but the massacre. Muhammed Daoud, who planned the Black September attack on the Israeli Olympic team in 1972
(but did not participate in it) has no regrets about attack, and believes the Spielberg film is pro-Israel propaganda (even though he hasn’t seen it). “We did not target Israeli civilians,” Daoud told Reuters. “Some of them (the athletes) had taken part in wars and killed many Palestinians. Whether a pianist or an athlete, any Israeli is a soldier.” So, all Israelis are soldiers, therefore no Israeli is an innocent civilian, so killing any Israeli is permissible.
